UT Southwestern receives $36.7 million for cancer research
Date:3/28/2011

DALLAS March 25, 2011 The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) has awarded more than $36.7 million in new grants to investigators at UT Southwestern Medical Center to support cancer-related projects and to recruit pre-eminent cancer investigators. CPRIT was established in 2007 after Texas voters approved a constitutional amendment that authorized the state to fund cancer research and prevention programs.

These awards, made after a rigorous peer-review process, resulted in UT Southwestern receiving the most funding of any individual Texas institution in CPRIT's latest round of grants. Awards to UT Southwestern researchers were part of $116 million allocated for 22 projects at 16 Texas-based academic institutions and private firms. This round of grants is part of $216 million expected to be awarded by the institute this year.

Funding for UT Southwestern announced March 24 included more than $30 million to support projects involving 20 pre-eminent researchers. Among these are new imaging technology and techniques for identifying and tracking cancers; repairing damaged DNA strands; developing new drugs and drug-delivery systems; and establishing a Texas Cancer Cell Repository for storing cancer cells and tumors for future study. The awards also include $6 million to recruit pre-eminent researchers.

"CPRIT funds are providing a powerful engine to attract the best and brightest minds to UT Southwestern and to Texas," said Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky, president of UT Southwestern. "These awards will accelerate dramatically the impact of UT Southwestern research on cancer care and illustrate the importance of teams of physicians and investigators working together to defeat cancer."
